9 Actors That Could Replace the X-MEN Heroes in the MCU

JEAN GREY A.K.A MARVEL GIRL/THE PHOENIX played by Jessica Chastain

Omega level mutant Jean Grey was always at a struggle throughout her life whether it be her powers, or her relationships, she always found a disconnect. As one of the founding members of the X-Men, and first student of Professor Xavier she was versatile, kind-hearted, intelligent, and is arguably the most powerful mutant in the X-Men universe. Famke Janssen portrayed the character in five films (X-Men 1,2,3, The Wolverine, Days of Future Past), but could never nail down the vulnerable parts of the telepath. The choice to have Janssen just stand there while the CGI did all the work in The Last Stand was laughable. To this day I feel sorry for all the actors involved in that mess. Someone who could bring that vulnerability with an edge of darkness is Jessica Chastain.

We will get to see the usually soft spoken actress play a villain in next year’s X-Men: Dark Phoenixbut her recent performance as the title character in Molly’s Game shows a side of sexiness, and corruption that we haven’t really seen the actress portray before. Just imagine Jessica, Jon, and Karl…..now that’s a good looking love triangle right now. Who wouldn’t be conflicted??
